Wow. That's fast even for them. I guess she was about to expire though...

This is Psalms 118. Taken in context of the surronding text, the verse they quote doesn't seem to apply to a wedding. Don't many Christians believe that verse 22 is a reference to Jesus?

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good;

his love endures forever.

2 Let Israel say:

“His love endures forever.â€

3 Let the house of Aaron say:

“His love endures forever.â€

4 Let those who fear the LORD say:

“His love endures forever.â€

5 When hard pressed, I cried to the LORD;

he brought me into a spacious place.

6 The LORD is with me; I will not be afraid.

What can mere mortals do to me?

7 The LORD is with me; he is my helper.

I look in triumph on my enemies.

8 It is better to take refuge in the LORD

than to trust in humans.

9 It is better to take refuge in the LORD

than to trust in princes.

10 All the nations surrounded me,

but in the name of the LORD I cut them down.

11 They surrounded me on every side,

but in the name of the LORD I cut them down.

12 They swarmed around me like bees,

but they were consumed as quickly as burning thorns;

in the name of the LORD I cut them down.

13 I was pushed back and about to fall,

but the LORD helped me.

14 The LORD is my strength and my defense[a];

he has become my salvation.

15 Shouts of joy and victory

resound in the tents of the righteous:

“The LORD’s right hand has done mighty things!

16 The LORD’s right hand is lifted high;

the LORD’s right hand has done mighty things!â€

17 I will not die but live,

and will proclaim what the LORD has done.

18 The LORD has chastened me severely,

but he has not given me over to death.

19 Open for me the gates of the righteous;

I will enter and give thanks to the LORD.

20 This is the gate of the LORD

through which the righteous may enter.

21 I will give you thanks, for you answered me;

you have become my salvation.

22 The stone the builders rejected

has become the cornerstone;

23 the LORD has done this,

and it is marvelous in our eyes.

24 The LORD has done it this very day;

let us rejoice today and be glad.

25 LORD, save us!

LORD, grant us success!

26 Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD.

From the house of the LORD we bless you.

27 The LORD is God,

and he has made his light shine on us.

With boughs in hand, join in the festal procession

up[c] to the horns of the altar.

28 You are my God, and I will praise you;

you are my God, and I will exalt you.

29 Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good;

his love endures forever.

Wait, they're saying Rachel is "the stone the builders rejected"? Do fundies ever consider context when they quote scripture? (That was a rhetorical question. Of course they don't.)

That is what I wondered. Are they comparing themselves to Jesus?

I think that they just chose a verse that sounded nice and ignored what the verse was actually meant.

Totally superficial, but she's so pretty, and he has such fugly teeth. Oh well, I'm sure they'll be very happy together.

So, June 30th.

I can't help it, but that guy gives me the creeps. Somehow. I hope that in person he is much nicer than he appears on photos.

No big surprise there...
